Here Comes the Miracle

Rated 0

Modern & contemporary fiction (post c 1945)

The lyrical depiction of grief in Max Porter's Grief is a Thing with Feathers meets the tender examination of different kinds of love in Sarah Winman's Tinman in this tear-jerking literary debut about a life cut short by cancer, and a love cut short by fear and social pressure.

It begins with a miracle: a baby born too small and too early, but defiantly alive. This is Joe.

Decades before, another miracle. In a patch of nettle-infested wilderness, a seventeen year old boy falls in love with his best friend, Jack. This is Edward.

Joe gains a sister, Emily. From the outset, her life is framed by his. She watches him grow into a young man who plays the violin magnificently and longs for a boyfriend. A young man who is ready to begin.

Edward, after being separated from Jack, builds a life with Eleanor. They start a family and he finds himself a grandfather to Joe and Emily.

When Joe is diagnosed with stage 4 cancer, Emily and the rest of the family are left waiting for a miracle. A miracle that won't come.

Here Comes the Miracle is a profoundly beautiful story about love and loss; and about the beautiful and violent randomness of life.
